Ideally with L5-MTHF: Most prenatals are fairly similar but there's a subtle yet important difference. About 30% of people can't convert Folic Acid to its active form, L-5-MTHF, so to be on the safe side it's best to take one with that form like Prenatal Nutrients (Pure Encapsulations), Basic Prenatal (Thorne) or Prenatal Pro (Designs For Health). These also have biotin, which is important, & natural E, not synthetic. ...Read more

What is the best prenatal vitamin you'd recommend?

Any w/enough Folate (folic acid): The main thing that distinguishes prenatal vitamins from regular multivitamins is the presence of additional Folate (folic acid) or Folic Acid, consumption of which has been shown to decrease risk of neural tube defects. But because this part of the body develops even before missing one's period, it's imperative to start taking prenatal vitamins as soon as one stops using contraception. ...Read more

Should I be concerned if my prenatal vitamin has Vit A 4, 000 IU? I need to take cheawables. I'm worried this is too high in Vit A to consume for baby?

Should I be concerned if my prenatal vitamin has Vit A 4, 000 IU? I need to take cheawables. I'm worried this is too high in Vit A to consume for baby?

There is some: Confusion about vitamin A supplements. An older (1995) study suggested that a very small number of mothers delivered babies with congenital defects if they consumed >10, 000 IU of vitamin A in the first 7 weeks of pregnancy. And the beta carotene/carotenoid form, mostly from diet, is best. Target 4000-5000 IU total, 3500 in your supplement. Avoid the retinol form of vitamin A in your supplement. ...Read more
